Enjoy a loftier view of Sligo’s splendid coastline with a guided tour on horseback. Horse riding is an ideal way to enjoy the region’s legendary atmosphere, replete with shipwrecks and wild landscapes, and Seatrails’ local archaeological experts are waiting to share it with you.

There’s no better way to soak up the scenery at Mullaghmore, a traditional Sligo fishing village, than on horseback. The village has long been a popular destination for hikers and surfers, and now local tour operator Seatrails have something for the history buffs, too. 

  • The thrill of cantering along the beach

Imagine wildflowers dancing in a saltwater breeze, quiet sandy beaches and the shipwreck legends that linger there, and ancient ruins and fossils ready to tell the tale of Sligo’s past. Then imagine the thrill of cantering along the beach with views of the mighty Benbulben in the distance. Seatrails offers intrepid visitors a chance to experience all this and more on an excursion worthy of high kings and modern explorers alike.

There’s no better way to soak up the scenery

Expert guides (all archaeologists with a passion for the local landscape) will bring the coast to life through animated stories and in-depth knowledge of the region’s rich cultural and natural history. You’ll clip-clop your way through country lanes and along quiet strands, journeying from prehistory to the present day on a guided horse ride like no other.

You can choose to enjoy it over an hour or two or you can spend the day in the saddle, venturing across a tidal lagoon onto a deserted island - the choice is yours.

Seatrails also offers refreshing guided walks and experiences in rugged mountainous and coastal locations where ancient heritage sites will wow you and landscapes speak. They will custom design a tour especially for you and accompany you at every step on your voyage of discovery.
